01-brenizer-method

Welcome to our Special Effects tutorial on Natural Light Wide Aperture Panoramic Stitching portraits. We will walk you through two full examples of this technique, also known as the Brenizer Method created by Ryan Brenizer, using a shallow depth of field to capture an environmental portrait – from what gear is required, to how to conceptualize, shoot, RAW process, and retouch these images to get to the final product. These images will yield a combined result of enhanced scene compression, bokeh, and a shallow depth of field on a wide angle shot.
